this is a reminder on the upcoming IEEE AASP Challenge on Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events 2016.
The training and development datasets for the challenge will be released soon!
The scope of this evaluation is to compare different approaches for computational scene analysis and event detection using a publicly available dataset and uniform metrics. This is the second edition of this challenge, following the success of first edition, DCASE 2013, that was concluded at WASPAA 2013.
You can find detailed information about the challenge on the website:http://www.cs.tut.fi/sgn/arg/dcase2016/
We have a forum for discussion and questions:https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/dcase-discussions
The planned schedule of the challenge is as follows:
January 2016 publication of database description and baseline systems
March 2016 Confirmation of participation
June 2016 Submission of results and technical report
September 2016 Workshop, satellite of EUSIPCO 2016 (Budapest, Hungary)
